Was that the weekend that just flew by....phew!

Pat and Chris

I have just been piddling around in a daze here on Monday. When June hits it always seems to hit hard and furious. My weekend officially started last week when I went into "Auntie Christina" mode cleaning. It is a good thing my sis (known in blogland as Knitting Mania) does visit once in awhile. It gives me great motivation for a deep cleaning I would otherwise not perform :/ Not her expectations mind you, just those left over ones from mommy dearest :) Friday night Dan and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary. Oh how the years go by!!!!! We went out to dinner to celebrate joined by Strider and his wife to a very, very nice restaurant. A pretty fancy one where the chef stands around and oversee's every plate that is presented. We all had halibut, except Dan the man who had his bison. Wonderful meal, good music, and great friends.
Somethings never change like chatting with my sis till the late hours of the night, and then yah...somethings do :^)
Dan and I June 5, 1976
Sometime around 2:00pm Saturday afternoon my sister rolls in. We had the wine chilling, the salmon ready to go, and Babies R Us on the way over. Jenna drove over from Seattle for the visit and we all had a great time. I was a little busy being hostess and did not take any pictures, but I think Chris will bless us with some. When all the hoopla settled down we visited till we put the guys to sleep. Then it was just me and sis chatting till 3:oo am. That was doable, but when miss Christina Marie waltzed into my bedroom at 8:30 am with a cup of coffee and a rise and shine. I was...well lets just say...you have got to be kidding me!!! They were leaving at 11:00 am and I had better get up and visit some more. (they were here for 21 hours) Thank goodness Dan took charge of breakfast...have I mentioned I am NOT a morning person. She got a very big kick out of waking me up :) Seriously it was wonderful to see my sister even if it was a whirl.

After Pat and Chris left, we headed out for a graduation lunch. Came home about 3:00 ish, I fell asleep for about an hour. At 4:15 Meg arrived with P.T. and S.P. and we babysat while they attended a wedding. Next on the docked was the Intern graduation, which I forgot (totally still not with it) till I got a text from Pastor Chris. Showed up just in the nick of time to say something sweet to the kids, and eat cake. Anniversaries, graduations, and weddings OH MY.
(and the best part of all, my sis!)

You have me laughing! It sounds like life has been quite a whirlwind over there...and how wonderful to have 'knitting mania' come for a visit.

I love the wedding photo...it's so fun to see where we have all 'come from'.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Your wedding photo looks similar to ours. We were married April 5, l975...all the fun memories of those years. Congratulations to both of you on 33 years. A true milestone in this day and age. You both look great!

Thanks again for getting up early and being a good sport about it!

Your visit sounds so fun and congratulations on the anniversary. I miss my dear late sister as much as it it was yesterday. But I will take pleasure in your visit. Thanks for sharing. Blessings

It does sound like you have had a whirlwind, but sometimes that is the BEST. I love your pictures. I think Chris has lost weight. She looks fabulous. Your wedding picture is adorable. I will be in Seattle from next Tuesday to Sunday. Are you far away?

Oh I've seen the pics and they were great! I'm glad that you got to visit even if it was for too short a time.

Your daughter Jenna looks so much like you now that I see your wedding photo.

And now I'm noticing that your sidebar has slipped way down low. Interesting...

Great to catch up a bit with you again!
